HD-Vinyl 24/96 (DGG) Frederik Chopin – Piano Concerto No. 2 (Askenase)

The playing of Stefan Askenase (1896-1985) was a marvel of tender poetry, subtle rubato, and lucid clarity. If your models for piano playing are the cool efficiency of Pollini or the theatrical thunder of Horowitz, you may find Askenase’s manner too polite and small-scale. But if you prefer delicate shimmer and sparkle to empty glitter, and if you are seeking lyric grace of enormous subtlety, then Askenase is a must-hear.
